The Iowa baseball team lost to Ohio State, 3-2, on Monday night. The loss drops Iowa’s record to 26-17 on the season, 8-10 in the Big Ten.

Sophomore Tyler Peyton took the mound for Iowa, but he lasted just 2.1 innings, giving up 3 hits and 2 earned runs. Relief pitchers Jared Mandel and Blake Hickman pieced together the final 5.2 innings, giving up a combined 1 earned run on 6 hits.

Iowa gave up 2 runs to Ohio State in the third inning but eventually tied the game in the fifth inning on RBIs from Jake Mangler and Jake Yacinich. However, Iowa lost that lead in the bottom half of the fifth inning when Buckeye Troy Kuhn hit a solo home run to give Ohio State its final lead of the game.

Iowa will return to action on Wednesday to take on head coach Rick Heller’s former team, Upper Iowa, where Heller played at and coached in his first coaching job.

The matchup, scheduled for 6 p.m., will be Iowa’s final nonconference game of the season. The Hawks will return to Big Ten play on Friday, against Illinois at Banks Field.
